The Three Chimneys – Colbost, Isle of Skye
Clued-up foodies have been flocking to this renowned three AA-rosette restaurant with rooms on the shores of Loch Dunvegan for more than 35 years, attracted by its ethos of showcasing Scotland’s natural land and sea larder. Virtually all the ingredients used at The Three Chimneys are sourced from within a few miles, as well as the wider Scottish Highlands: head chef Scott Davies collects fresh lobster, crab and langoustines from the fishermen’s boats in Dunvegan’s harbour; Soay lamb and pork from Iron Age pigs come from Orbost Farm, while nearby Eaglescreek Croft’s heritage potatoes and purple kale goes straight from plot to plate in the same day. For those who fancy a front- row seat watching the chefs in action, there’s also the Kitchen Table (bookable for groups of two to eight people), where you can order a ‘surprise’ menu to try. Next door, the House Over-By has six contemporary, split- level rooms to choose from, all with luxury pampering products in the bathrooms. It really is the ideal place to stay after an unforgettable supper.
Doubles from £275 in winter, £365 in summer
